The CSCS card is a way to verify that people working on construction sites have the appropriate knowledge and training. This helps prevent on-the-job mishaps that endanger everyone's health and safety. You obtain a CSCS card by taking the CSCS Health, Safety & Environment Test. There are 150 CSCS test centres nationwide including in Croydon.
What to Expect in the Test
Upon arriving to take your CSCS test, the staff will first need to check your ID and verify that you are scheduled for testing. For security purposes, a photo of you will be taken. Once testing begins, you can expect it to take 45 minutes. When you have completed the 50 multiple-choice questions, you will receive your results certificate.
What to Take With You
You must have a valid ID to test. No ID, no test. Acceptable forms of ID are your UK driving license or passport. If you don’t have either form of identification, you will need to bring with you two alternate forms of ID.
These include a British Armed Forces card, an EU Country ID card, a Trade Union card, a recent bank statement, a credit or debit card, or a National Insurance card. If you’d like to see a complete list of alternate forms of identification, please click here
What to do Before Going to the Test Centre
Most people who fail their CSCS test do so as a result of not studying. Please take the time to revise your test before coming in. To help you with this, you can find revision material by clicking here
